Frequently Asked Questions
What Is a Structural Engineer?
What Is a Model Building Code?
A model building code is a building code developed by an independent agency under no direct jurisdiction. State and local jurisdictions typically adopt a model building code in lieu of developing their own building code, as it is very cost-prohibitive to do so.
Is a Permit Required?
Section 105 of the International Building Code (IBC) outlines the type of work requiring a permit. It also includes work that is exempt from permit. In general, any work regulated by the IBC that alters the occupancy of a building or structure requires a permit.
